Colin Hayter Wiki Biography

Born Colin James Hay on the 29th June 1953 in Saltcoats, Scotland United Kingdom, he is a musician, vocalist and actor as well, but probably best known to the world as a member of the Australian band Men at Work, with which he released three albums, later continuing on a solo career, releasing 13 albums. His involvement in the entertainment industry started in the ‘70s.

Have you ever wondered how rich Colin Hay is, as of early 2017? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Hay’s net worth is as high as $16 million, an amount earned through his successful career in the entertainment industry, as he is also an accomplished actor, having appeared in such productions as “Heaven’s Burning” (1997), “The Uninvited” (2008), and “Lowdown” (2012), which also improved his wealth.

Colin spent his early years in Scotland, and then when he was 14, he and his whole family moved to Australia.

A decade later, he met Ron Strykert and the two started making music together, firstly only acoustic but soon enough switched to electric instruments. They brought in Jerry Speiser on drums, John Ress as a bass player and Greg Ham as a keyboardist, flautist and saxophone player’ they named themselves Man at Work, and in 1981 released their album “Business as Usual”. The album topped the charts in several countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, United Kingdom and US, and achieved seven times platinum status in Australia, five times platinum in Canada, six times platinum in US, all of which only increased Hay’s net worth, and encouraged the group to continue in the same rhythm. Two more albums were released during band’s existence – “Cargo” (1983) and “two Hearts” (1985) – “Cargo” topped the chart in Australia, and achieved triple platinum status in Australia and Canada, while the latter wasn’t as popular, but still achieved gold status in the US, further increasing Hay’s net worth. After that, the band broke-up, but had several reunions over the years, although no new material was released.

Colin continued his career as a musician, releasing a number of solo albums, while also working with Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band. Some of Colin’s solo albums include his debut “Looking for Jack” (1987), then “Wayfaring Sons” (1990), “Topanga” (1994), “Company of Strangers” (2002), “American Sunshine” (2009), and in recent years “Next Year People” (2015) and “Fierce Mercy” (2017). However, he has never reached popularity of the Men at Work as a solo artist, although the sales of his albums have certainly increased further his net worth.

Most recently, Colin has produced an audio book of “Aesop’s Fables with Colin Hay”, narrating 24 of the Fables as adapted by author Tom Graves.

Regarding his personal life, Colin is married to Cecilia Noël, who often contributes to the production of his solo efforts. The two now reside in Topanga Canyon near Los Angeles, California.
